Long Form Music Journalism
June 30, 2014 8:19 AM Subscribe
Link me to riveting, long form music journalism online! I want to read case histories of musicians with troubled lives, like these articles about Elliot Smith
and Ben Todd
. Or maybe a peek at a subculture I barely knew existed, like Kid Rock's Cruise
or Nathan Rabin's many recaps of The Gathering
. I'll also accept a straight-ahead profile, as long as it's as well written as Elizabeth Gilbert's piece on Hank-3.

I don't care what genre it is; I don't listen to any of the artists in the articles I just linked. I'm looking for pieces that explore a person, or a band, or a scene, rather than "oral history of a classic album" or "thinkpiece about a genre," but really I just want to read some fascinating writing and gawk at people with deeply weird lives.
